- Oct 31 by n.a.norcalI used to work in biotech and am now applying to entry level NP programs. As someone who's still young, single, with no commitments (gf, kids, etc), things won't be so bad. What you have to realize is there IS a nationwide nursing shortage. Plenty of places are saturated with nurses that can't find jobs as they are high paid regions with highly qualified and experienced nurses. If you are willing to go to where the jobs are to gain your experience before moving to your dream location, you shouldn't have any problems!
- Oct 31 by smalltownheroI worked in the surf industry. I worked for lost clothing and Billabong at different times in the past 6 years. Ive owned a surf school and managed a surf shop in the past as well. Im 28, and starting RN school in 2 months. What a huge and SMART career change! =)
- Nov 8 by wbthomasI was a general contractor for many years. Lost it all with the big crash. I graduate in May 2014. Looking forward to a steady career.
- Nov 9 by LevitasI was a CNC Machinist for about 5 years until I was laid off. Originally thought I would pursue Pharmacology, but found that Nursing better suited me, and my personal goals.
- Nov 9 by jon shannonGo for it, I felt the same way. I was a Purchasing Manager for more than twenty years before going back to nursing school and now I have passed my exit hesi and graduating in December 18, 2013. You will be the old guy in class but it will be to your advantage. Best advise is to stay out of the politics and stick to the important stuff, studying! Good luck)
